It’s been awhile since I posted a picture of my desk, but it’s been in front of a plain beige wall since we moved. Yawn. Once I unpacked pictures, I knew I probably wanted to put my family dairy farm related pictures above my desk, perhaps incorporating my milk bottle collection. It took me awhile to form any sort of concrete idea, until I remembered there’s an aerial photo of the farm and then things fell into place. Sort of.
I ordered my photos and headed to Hobby Lobby for a frame. I already had three small barn wood frames, bought at Hobby Lobby many many years ago. I looked at the larger barn wood frames but ended up with a dark red frame. It’s slightly distressed–not really my cup of tea, but it works. I brought it home, got my picture inside, and realized the frame has no hanger. What?! I ended up asking Larry to make a ledge, which I painted the same shade of green as my sewing table.
I measured wrong. I thought I would be able to fit my half gallon bottle on the shelf. I put that back in the cupboard, got out my cast iron milk wagon, and rearranged my pints and half pints. It works, more or less, although the arrangement of the three smaller frames is off. And that square frame will not hang straight for anything!
